It is the mission of the Morning Star Preschool to provide a Christ-centered learning and developmental experience for young children together with a quality academic education.

The objective of our preschool is to provide an environment that:

  • Is safe, nurturing and developmentally appropriate for effective learning.
  • Recognized and validates the child’s strengths and interests.
  • Is God centered.
  • Instills Christian character, values and beliefs.
  • Promotes educational readiness that emphasized literary skills as well as social, emotional, physical, cognitive, intellectual and creative ambitions.
  • Inspires your child to learn, create and play.

Our Admission Policy: Morning Star Preschool, a ministry of Morning Star Fellowship, admits any student without regard to race, color, national and/or ethnic origin. Students are entitled to all rights, programs and activities made available to the school.

Registration for the 2017-18 school year opens on February 28. After initial openings are filled, a waiting list is started. Please email Liz DeFrain for details.
